Training and development

Whether it’s training for you or for your whole organisation. We will ensure you get the best results for your time and resources.

Our courses

Our courses offer up-to-date and relevant material in short, intensive programmes. Many of these address serious skills shortages.

Our part-time, flexible CPD courses fit around your existing work commitments.

We work with our local partners in the health service and industry. We design, develop and update the teaching materials on our courses. This helps to ensure that what we deliver matches the requirements of the students and organisations that we deliver to.

Our website focuses on continuing professional development for healthcare professionals.

In Newcastle we have experience and expertise in designing bespoke courses. We tailor these for the needs of your organisation or learner group.

Local business and small to medium size enterprises may be eligible for funding. The funding assists with the development and running of bespoke courses.
